Summary
"How is it that Aboriginality seems to appear and disappear in public culture? One of the key ways in which this happens is through some strange and repetitive patterns of forgetting and remembering: forgetting dispossession and then recalling it much later, forgetting nuclear testing on indigenous lands and then uncovering that history; forgetting the removal of indigenous children and then remembering their stories. This cycle is both dishonest and destructive. Writing against these tendencies, this book is about the politics of memory. It attempts to remember the continuity of the historical presence of Aboriginality and to remembering how that presence has been forgotten."--Provided by publisher
